comment How to block outgoing traffic (HTTP) from VMs?
@RicL, Chopper already answered that part of the question...vSwitch are plain Layer2 Switch...ie, the only thing they know about are MAC addresses. You WILL need a firewall of some kind to achieve your goal.

Your question is too vague...what are you doing with that server? Is it a DB server? Application server?...

comment How to stop users from running CPU heavy programs on a server?
I don't want to claim that I'm an expert with this type of question but...my understanding is that it will prevent users from "hugging" the CPU. So after a total of x seconds of CPU usage the process will take the back seat. Therefore preventing 100% CPU usage from a single user.

comment Dual ISPs - Load balancing
@Lbaker, what adaptr is saying is, if you want your users to load balance when going out of your network, then you can use hardware and/or software to do this. If you want the world to reach your office and load balance between two ISP than you need those ISP to talk and configure accordingly.

comment SCP does not completely transfer file
I'm not sure if there's a reason, but there is a lack of details that's for sure. Are both computer running Ubuntu? Is the SCP client "hanging" or did it end properly. Did you do a MD5 checksum of both files just to make sure it's not simply a "GUI" issue?

comment If e-mail is only “best effort” delivery, is there a similar protocol with guaranteed delivery?
@mailq, I agree with you. But again, a fax confirmation does not confirm that it ended up at the right destination neither. That's why I said that both sender and recipients server logs is as good, if not better than the reception confirmation from a fax.

comment Pros/cons cloud vs real servers
I would add a little "cons" against the Cloud services...you actually loose "ownership" and "control" of your data. I put them in quotations because legally you still own the data and control it...but you now entirely trust someone else with it.
